A new reality show about fashion from Bravo TV, 'Launch My Line' will combine the passion of contestants and the skill of expert designers.
In a creative new package, Bravo TV will premiere yet another fashion reality show called "Launch My Line". The show will pair up professionals wishing to have their own fashion line with established fashion designers that assist them in the journey. The ten teams that will compete for the ultimate prize have been unveiled.
The professionals are ranging from an architect to a fashion critic while the fashion designers aka "The Experts" are mostly those who have resided in California. The concept of the show is to have the pairs sharing cohesiveness in creating a fashion line. According to the press release, "Some teams form a natural connection while others have instant tension."
Acclaimed designers, twin brothers Dean and Dan Caten of DSQUARED2 serve as the series hosts, and fashion notables Stefani Greenfield and Lisa Kline are series judges. The winning professional will have their clothing line launched and the expert designer partner will receive $50,000.
"Launch My Line" premieres September 16 at 10/9c.
